that the government can easily win and they will win them. and contrary to what he told us last night that the battle in zawiya would be over right now and it was really just mopping up, that's not the case. it's what is the picture he's emerging that there'll be a battle at least. and the government's finding it much harder. they have heavy weapons, artillery. they haven't used those thus far, which seems to indicate they do want to limit civilian collateral damage to a degree. but it's not clear how much longer their patience will be and how much they will ratchet up in the heart of the city their military campaign. because at the moment they don't appear to be doing very well. >> how confident would you say the opposition is? >> reporter: i think they are determined. they know what they're fighting for, whereas the government soldiers are a little less clear about what they're fighting for. for example in zawiya, they have nowhere to break out, no other sort of rebel force. and really, if the government lay siege carefully and strategically, which so far are not managing to do. and

are actually exposed. he gives us a glimpse into what might have happened inside that nuclear plant at the time of the explosion. >> the temperatures start to build and then in a matter of several hours you can start to have the reactor experience a meltdown and other things could happen with these very high temperatures that could be as high as 5,000 degrees fahrenheit. for example, the zirconium that contains the fuel at those temperatures can spontaneously combust, catch fire. the water could generate hydrogen, and you might have fire and explosions. >>> another nuclear plant not far from the reactor that exploded alerted authorities that the cooling systems in three of the four reactors have failed. >>> now, at least 45 countries have now pledged rescue teams, supplies, and financial aid. japan has accepted offers of search and rescue teams. so far from australia, new zealand, south korea, and the united states. the u.s. has also sent navy ships to japan to help out with the relief. it's also helping with what president obama calls "lift capacity." heavy lifting equipment. the u.s.
